Wouldn't they have the same level of success just by saying that the member split because of creative differences or something along those lines?

I'm pretty sure the only one of those that was actually fake was the 50 one, the other ones perhaps were blown out of proportion, but they were there. I could be wrong though, I don't really pay attention to that stuff.

I kind of doubt it... people love their gossip and the more volatile a situation is the more interest it'll generate.

As far as I know the entire G.O.O.D. music vs. YMCMB incident was definitely a stunt, and the Drake/Common thing was blown way out of proportion by the media. I probably pay attention too much haha

Not when you all play the same song, like these guys.

Ehhhh...



Wouldn't really call the two bands similar anymore.

Most polarizing label. Love Transit, MDAM, TEN, and some others, hate almost everything else.

Completely backed. Daytrader, TEN, and Further Seems Forever were some of my favorites from last year. Can't stand Sleeping With Sirens, OM&M, and those "scene" bands.

ITT: OP implies that there is no beef among bands in similar genres that AP.net covers.

-Sherri / Max Bemis and Chad Gilbert
- A Day to Remember and various other bands.
-NOFX and Underoath
-Fat Mike and Propaghandi
-Fat Mike and Chris Hannah
-Escape the Fate and Ronnie Ratke (or however you spell it)
-Slipknot and Mushroomhead (and actually a lot of other bands too)

Artists who make similar music have been beefing since the Baroque period. It just so happens that these bands are on the same label. There is no way that Rise is going to try to censor what their bands say to each other and risk damaging their good reputation as a record label. All of the effort that it would take for them to facilitate these rivalries would earn them a minimal amount of profit as hardly anyone is going to buy these albums just to hear the few minutes of beef in lyrics.

Never implied that there are never conflicts between other bands within AP genres, I'm not sure where you're getting that. I also didn't say anything about Rise censoring their bands, I think at this point they're either encouraging non-amicable band splits or staging them entirely.

I think you'd be surprised about the rewards for the label, Issues' debut EP hit 96 on the Billboard 200, actually performing better than either of Woe, is Me's records. Of Mice & Men, another band born out of a Rise records split, also put out records that perform pretty much on-par with Attack Attack!. Attack Attack! are a pretty damn profitable band, too: Their last two records charted at 26 and 11 on the Billboard 200. I'd argue that the primary reason OM&M has had similar success is that Austin had a pretty public falling out with AA!, only makes sense that the label would want to try and replicate that type of success with Tyler Carter and the Issues situation.

AHAHAAHA IMAGINE CARING ABOUT ANY OF THIS WHAT A FUCKING DORK AHAHAHAH

I find it interesting, I'm not sure why that's so awful.
